Harrabin on the CRU hack

Yes, a miracle has happened. Roger Harrabin did a piece on the CRU hack that was not a complete whitewash. It did manage to avoid most of the issues though.

UK listeners can hear it here, starting at 19 mins, 15sec.

It includes calls for a public inquiry from both sides of the debate.

Well the BBC are effectively civil service, and they would only call for an enquiry if they knew what the result was beforehand, or know 99.9% that it would not happen.

Sadly my opinion of the BBC (and the Guardian) is not high and I used to be frequenters of both.

Dear Roger is one of the blessed. Debate? I doubt it.

Thanks for the link, I live in Holland and was able to hear it. Good luck with your book, I will buy it in January, and also buy the expanded editions.

This is OT but I don't know where else to post it. BBC Radio 4 has just reported on a new study claiming that 'Global warming will increase likelihood of civil war in Africa by 55 percent'.


(Such precision!)

The full study isn't yet available online but you don't need to read it to know that this is yet another example of spurious correlation being enlisted for a political end in the name of climate science. The study covered the years 1980-2002, thereby nicely straddling the end of the Cold War. Local conflicts proliferating following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the withdrawal of saintly Cuba's foreign legions? Cripes! Must be climate change!

Vinny - I think they rounded up from 54.87912756353 - these models are so good you know.

Here is an interesting exchange between Fred Singer and Bob Watson, and some good questions by Andrew Neil, on The Daily Politics:

" We plan more debates on the run up to the Copenhagen climate summit."

I saw that. Didn't Bob Watson look shifty!
